This dessert idea is so easy!
Serving options include: adding some Papa Vince Sea Salt or chopped nuts for extra crunch or serving with berries, other fruits or an Italian cookie.
You may think that olive oil is reserved for appetizers and entrees and maybe even drinking that single shot in the morning to boost your health. Who says that Extra Virgin Olive Oil doesn't also make a delicious dessert?
You know the Italians, they put their Extra Virgin Olive Oil on everything and ice cream is no exception. Top Italian Chefs inspired this idea and it's being served at Italian coffee shops and trendy restaurants, it's a must try for all adventurous foodies, so of course we had to give it the taste test!
Research shows that a variety of taste sensations (sweet, salty, spicy) better satisfy the taste buds than a single dominant flavor and that's why the combination of the creamy vanilla ice cream and the sweet yet tart Lemon Olive Oil works so well!
We all need a little sweet treat from time to time and this one tastes so much better than store bought toppings which are full of ingredients that you can't pronounce. Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil contains only crushed lemons and olives and is full of anti-oxidants and vitamins A, B6, E & K1, it's the best guilt free dessert! You can always make your own ice cream and make it even healthier!
Traditionally a middle Eastern food & a staple in the Mediterranean diet, hummus has become an established favorite in any health conscious kitchen. Packed with vitamins & minerals and anti-oxidants from the extra virgin olive oil, not only will it make you healthy from the inside out but will also wake up your tastebuds.
All you need is a good quality blender or food processor & your Papa Vince Olive Oil & Lemon Olive Oil and you’re all set.
We recently served this as an appetizer at our Christmas Open House. We prepared a double portion and there was none left at the end of the evening.
This is a healthy & different appetizer idea that you can easily prepare and wow your guests at holiday parties!
